As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly - WKRP THANKSGIVING

Les Nessman: I'm here with hundreds of people who have gathered to witness what has been described as perhaps the greatest turkey event in Thanksgiving Day history. All we know for sure is that in a very few moments there are going to be a lot of happy people out here. Now the crowd is... [passers-by gawk at Les]

Les Nessman: The... the crowd is uh... curious but well behaved. And I think I hear something now. Uh... The crowd is moving out into the parking area. And... oh yes! I can see it now. It's a... it's a... helicopter and it's coming this way!

Andy Travis: A helicopter?

Les Nessman: It's flying something behind it and I can't quite make it out. It's a large banner and it says H A P P Y... T H A N K S... giving... from W... K... R... P!

What a sight, ladies and gentlemen. What a sight. The 'copter seems to circling the parking area now. I guess it's looking for a place to land. No! Something just came out of the back of a helicopter. It's a dark object, perhaps a skydiver plummeting to the earth from only two thousand feet in the air... There's a third... No parachutes yet... Those can't be skydivers. I can't tell just yet what they are but...

Oh my God! They're turkeys! 

Oh no! Johnny can you get this? Oh, they're crashing to the earth right in front of our eyes!


This is terrible! Everyone's running around pushing each other.

Oh my goodness! Oh, the humanity! 

People are running about. The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Folks, I don't know how much longer... The crowd is running for their lives. I think I'm going to step inside. I can't stand here and watch this anymore. No, I can't go in there. Children are searching for their mothers and oh, not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this. I don't know how much longer I can hold my position here, Johnny. The crowd...

Dr. Johnny Fever: Les? Les? Les, are you there? Les isn't there. Thanks for that on-the-spot report, Les. For those of you who've just tuned in, the Pinedale Shopping Mall has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven.



[Les walks in, looking dazed]
Venus Flytrap: Les! Are you okay?

Les Nessman: I don't know. A man and his two children tried to kill me. After the turkeys hit the pavement, the crowd kind of scattered but, some of them tried to attack *me*! I had to jam myself into a phone booth! Then Mr. Carlson had the helicopter land in the middle of the parking lot. I guess he thought he could save the day by turning the rest of the turkeys loose. It gets pretty strange after that.

Venus Flytrap: [to Andy] *How* is it strange?

Andy Travis: Yeah, right. Les, c'mon now, tell us the rest.

 Les Nessman: [freaked out] I really don't know how to describe it. 

It was like the turkeys mounted a counter-attack

It was almost as if they were... ORGANIZED?

[Mr. Carlson comes out of his office]

Happy Birthday Kirk!   Metallica’s Kirk Hammett offered feature horror movie role on his 51st Birthday!   Could we see Kirk battling ghosts and zombies in the upcoming HorrorNews.net movie, DEAD afterlife?   It’s extremely possible.  All Kirk has to do is say,  YES!  And writer/producer Michael Joy and producer Marie Lemelle would love to have Metallica guitarist star in this project.   Kirk is a well-known horror aficionado and recently had big success with his book,  Too Much Horror Business.   Metallica and Horror fans alike would surely flock to the theatres to see Kirk Hammett do what he was meant to do  -   kill some zombies and get bloody.   It seems like a dream situation.   Kirk would be joining the already attached cast that includes horror icons – Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, and Bill Moseley.    Former Pro Wrestling Legend, Austin Idol,  has also signed on along with actors Bill Oberst Jr, Andy Gates,  Trae Ireland,  Liana Mendoza and director, Jared Cohn.
